I asked my womb what she wanted in order to empower, to heal, and she told me ‘running’, to unwind... I had started to wonder if we were after one of the usual suspects - more yoga, a yoni egg, something I hadn’t thought of yet. I had started to listen to the ‘noise’ again instead of keeping to my inner authenticity. Running is what ‘he’ (the guru) prescribed. No tension between Shiva and Shakti, both wanting the same things: for me to empower. For a moment I had wavered, but there she was, ready to reassure and tell me everything.
We forget the uterus is the strongest muscle in the human body. The seat of female power. It needs oxygen. It needs to be fit. (Trigger warning: birth story follows)
When I was pregnant, I swam every weekday and also went to the gym with daughter number 1. I can’t attribute everything to that, but she flew out pretty quick ignoring all the text books and the midwives’ expectations. I knew she was coming, that what I was experiencing was powerfully efficient, but because I was still calmly standing up, walking around, no one took my progress seriously. Until there we were, stranded in the corridor in the middle of the night in a flurry of contractions, not able to move because daughter number 1 was on her way OUT.
What I’m saying is, as soon as our inner authenticity and wisdom conflicts with advice ‘out there’, even holistic advice or readings from people we trust, we can grow anxious and doubt ourselves. I don’t follow the rule book in just about anything I do, so this is BIG for me. When this happens, always go back to being meditative. Not necessarily in meditation itself, just sitting back in your energy and using your whole body to feel.
